The golf course was designed by Michael Lowry. It features well-placed bunkers and beautiful water-features to provide a challenging yet relaxing round of golf. As the surrounding community grows, Vaaler Creek is destined to be one of the Texas Hill Country's finest golf experiences.
We are located inside the Rockin' J Ranch development. Although we share the same owner we do not share the same name. The golf course was named in memorial to Jack Vaaler. Jack was very good friends and a fellow soldier with Colonel Roper, who owns the development and the golf course. Jack was involved with golf as far back as the 1940's when he started out as a caddy at LaCrosse Country Club. During his life-long involvement with golf Jack was an active member in the San Antonio Golf Association, was a volunteer at several PGA tournaments, and was a president of Woodlake Country Club. Jack also became a close friend with Chi Chi Rodriguez. Jack Vaaler loved the game of golf and adheared to its highest standards. Jack passed away during the initial construction phase of the golf course.
We opened the back nine in July 2007. The front nine was opened July 4, 2009. The course features spectacular panoramic views of the Texas Hill Country, an abundance of live oaks, and rolling topography.
You can view pictures of each hole on the "Photo Gallery" page and see pictures of the front nine during construction on the "Vaaler Contruction" page.
